the last airbender super bowl ad

Ah, more from The Last Airbender. Saw over on Racebending that the movie's Super Bowl TV spot is up and running. As you can see, it looks pretty epic. It also looks extremely ridiculous -- a disappointing reminder of what this actually could have been. Not an Asian face in sight.

Instead, you've got a bunch white actors running around in what's supposed to be a fantastical Asian-inspired world. Whatever. Expect more foolishness sometime next week, when the theatrical trailer is scheduled to premiere.

According to Ain't It Cool News, the studio actually had a test screening of The Last Airbender -- a rough cut -- this week in Arizona. And couple of audience members sent in two very divergent reviews. Ah, hell. At this point, why do I even care?
